Irish Scallop Bisque

Irish Scallop Bisque

Here is a wonderful recipe for Irish Scallop Bisque.

According to beyondmeresustenance.com, a bisque is traditionally a cream and shellfish based soup of French origin. The mirepoix base in this one really bumps up the flavor, and the use of prepared shellfish stock makes this quick and easy. The author strongly recommends using an immersion blender to purée the soup as pouring hot soup into a blender is messy and can be dangerous.

Luxurious flavors abound in this creamy bisque! It’s perfect as an elegant starter course, or a light main course with bread and a salad…

If you are serving it as a starter course, use one scallop per bowl.. If you plan to serve it as a main course, the recipe author suggests 2 to 3 scallops per serving.

Recipe by Oana Iancu as published on beyondmeresustenance.com.

  1. Heat a gas grill to high.
  2. Score fish: Cut 1 slash lengthwise down to the bone, then crosswise in 2 places, spacing apart; repeat on other side.
  3. Season fish cavity and skin with salt; drizzle fish with 1/4 cup oil. Stuff some of the lime slices (reserve a few for garnish) and herb stems inside fish.
  4. Clean and oil grill grate well. Grill fish, resisting the urge to turn it, until skin is nicely crisp and charred and flesh is flaky and opaque down to the bone. (This can take 6–15 minutes, depending on size of fish.
  5. Place a metal spatula underneath fish (a pair of metal tongs on top of fish also helps for support), then lift and gently roll over to the other side. Cook until flesh is flaky and opaque down to the bone, 6–15 minutes. Use a small knife to check for doneness; if it slides easily through the thickest part of flesh, fish is done. If not, finish cooking fish on grill or in a 450° oven.
  6. Place fish on a serving platter; drizzle oil and lime juice over. Garnish with reserved lime slices, basil leaves, and cilantro.
